The Plastic Recycling Conference is an event held in National Harbor, Maryland, from 6-8 March that brings together the plastics recycling industry. Industry members will be able to catch up on the latest market news and trends in this rapidly evolving sector, at a three-day event curated by industry experts. The exhibition hall will feature over 250 companies including processors, compounders, equipment suppliers and others. Sirmax will be present at stand 525 displaying its entire product range, especially the innovations concerning the circular economy.
Sirmax, a manufacturer of polypropylene compounds, engineering polymers, post-consumer compounds and bio-compounds for a wide variety of applications, built its first US production plant in 2015. The second plant was added in 2020 and became fully operational in 2022. The total combined production area of the two plants is 268,000 square feet (around 25,000 square meters). The newer plant, which saw a $35 million investment, is entirely designated for the production of recycled polypropylene from post-industrial waste, while the original plant, built thanks to an agreement with the Economic Development Agency of Anderson Township and the State of Indiana, produces polyolefins derived from virgin plastics. At the Plastic Recycling Conference Sirmax will exhibit our circular compounds and the latest innovations about our range of circular and low carbon footprint compounds manufactured in the Group's US plants. The products are available in accordance with some standards recently introduced by the automotive and appliance sectors.
